Good day, friends! I have been cheating on writing with painting. I am currently working on a large canvas. This picture is a tiny portion of a much larger painting I am excited to share with everyone when I'm done.
I want to welcome Patty to the website. She found out about it after reading my book and through my friend Ruth, who is also on this page. Patty, big hugs as you share yourself here either with your words and/or your consciousness. You are in a supportive space. Thank you for your note.
I have also begun to bring over the Thirty Days of Self-Love Experience. You can find it here. Each day I move over at least one Patreon archived post. There is a category for it to your right. I only work on this about three hours a day, and then I find I have to move onto something else, like Being:)
BOUNDARIES IN DIVINE WILL
As I wrote a little about yesterday on our group email forum (more on that below), the state of Being for me has been shifting and expanding exponentially. On my walk yesterday, I was pondering how my boundaries had shifted in the space of divine will, and I noticed something for myself.
In human free will (perceived), boundaries were based on human judgments about right and wrong, such as - an old example - that I should help a friend in need by, for example, lending them money. Boundaries were based on what I should do - a view through the lens of right and wrong or dualistic constructs - a judgment on how I should behave. This also included societal norms of politeness, etiquette (subjective), and so on. It also included obligations, some of the familial and communal variety.
In divine will, my firm yet expansive boundaries are now based on discernment - discernment of what is serving me and what is no longer serving me. Like you all, this life is all about enlightenment and compassionate detachment - when that serves - and deeper connection - when that serves the soul's passion to know it is God also.
Deeper than that has been expanding into compassion - honor and respect for a person and/or experience - without trying to change it or them. Over the course of 2017, this deeply sunk in - yet just like the spiral I have felt it not just at a mental, emotional or even soul level - the detached compassion has permeated the cells in the Universe of Me. That means all simultaneous lives and facets of mySelf, now truly understand and comprehend compassion - not just human Lauren and my soul.
Sometimes compassion calls for being firm with the people we love, and I will write more about that next week.
Comprehending these boundaries for mySelf and how I apply them to my everyday life - as a walking, breathing master - is something that has been showing up in my life over and over again in order for me to distill the wisdom of the experience. One piece of that discernment is understanding and admitting that any mental task is simply not in alignment with my state of grace right now.
When I set up this new website, one of the options was that you could sign up for a group email or list serve in which everyone can share their experiences. I was managing that list at my own creation. I happen to love reading it, just not managing it.
What serves and does not serve us changes from moment to moment now. As you know well, we cannot be tied to, well, anything. As a result, people were asking to be put on and off the list enough to make me feel a little crazy. It's not you - it's me. Anything mental or task oriented in my life feels like nails being hammered into my brain.
So it's my responsibility to say, hey, that no longer serves me. In fact, I love your requests, and I have always done my best to honor them.
Yet, now if you would like something to be added to the Center of Being offerings, I'm counting on you as part of this amazing community to make it happen. I can't. I simply can't do anything task oriented anymore other than write and post.
Also, my soul is telling me - over and over again - anything that keeps me away from floating under the Banyan tree is not serving me. Painting, talks with kindred spirits, a walk in the woods, writing when it flows, spending time with my partner - that's about all I am capable of, and all I desire right now.
It seems to me now my soul's passionate desires and my human capabilities are synonymous with each other in the Divine Will experience. In Divine Will, human choice is removed from the threshold of how you interact with the world and is replaced with passion instead - and you won't waste a single thought worrying about what people think. It's simply too energetically expensive.
I know many of you can relate to this - deeply and repeatedly.
What I can do - what serves me Now in my passion for embodied existence - is to keep sharing with a group of grand souls who grace this forum whenever it feels good.
We are all sovereign masters experiencing the grandest human experience available - the embodied enlightenment experience - which allows us to shift, change, and expand second by second, minute by minute.
As a result, and with the ingenuity of Karen and Este, we have made this a sovereign site all the way through.
Drum roll, please...
NEW WAYS TO ENGAGE
Facebook: I am beyond appreciative of Karen, who has volunteered her time to establishing a secret Facebook group. Thank you for setting this up. To join that group you first must add Karen as a friend - her profile is under the name of Karen LeGrande - and grande she is! There is more information in the comments section. I am not on Facebook, nor will I be getting back on it - ever. No judgments at all. I used to really enjoy it, too.
Ryver Community: Este has stepped up to set up an online community in which you can post, not post, subscribe, and unsubscribe all you want to - without having to email me. You can email him at firstname.lastname@example.org should you want to be part of that community. Este - thank you so much - this relieves me of a lot of work. Giant hugs!
It seems like a grand solution all around. You can also remove yourself from the emails I send on this website by hitting the unsubscribe button anytime, and I will understand completely. Okay, that's not honest. I simply don't care about numbers. It's all quality over quantity. I'd rather share with five people who understand one another than a million drowning in their own makyo. It's also why I took money out of the equation. I'm not obligated to do anything I don't feel like.
Now that we have a completely sovereign website and community, let's celebrate.
Etheric dance party, anyone?
CONTACT WITH ME
I love hearing from you all. Do not hesitate to send me emails about your journey anytime you wish, without filter.
My only request is that you please be patient in a reply from me.
Also, I do not give personal advice. Ever. All the answers are right there within you.
If you would like a light shined on something in a post or to reflect mastery back to one another, I get that and enjoy it.
You can reach me at email@example.com whenever.
Or, Sar'h is always available for a walk, benching or playing in the dream worlds.
LAST NOTES ON PASSION
In reading your ever-so-aware comments, I had a wisdom pearl come up for myself. One master's task is another master's passion. To some writing everyday might feel like a task, to me it is a passion. I was able to figure out how to build the website by myself because I am passionate about sharing my writing.
Building a community forum might feel like a task to some like me, and a passion to others. What makes this community is that the passions lie in different areas, and we can bring the passions together for a time in sovereign community creation - as I stated in the manifesto. That's the fun in it.
So judgements or beLIEfs on whether a master should be able to work technology and complete tasks become obsolete in the context of Third Circle passion, for me. If we are passionate about something, it will always come together in ease and grace. I sense that is occurring here and now, even though it might appear with jagged edges to the human self. The soul sees the magnificence in the perfectly imperfect facets of its grand creations, for me, in this magical space.
In deep appreciation,
Lauren and the lot
